Friends of Baseball
Our mission is to enhance children's lives through baseball's power to teach.
Friends of Baseball was founded in 2005 by an Oregon father, son and Board of Trustees driven by their passion to give back in the form of aid and partner resources to the community of youth baseball and softball that they love. What started out as a family foundation sponsored by the Oregon Sports Authority has grown into an independent 501c3 that is working in five key areas:
- Baseball-inspired academic and physical education after school and summer enrichment programs
- Scholarships for kids to have access to play for local leagues and teams
- Training coaches to be positive mentors and providing them with resources
- Equipment and gear distribution
- Field safety and improvements
